Martin started in mathematical physics, moved through science communication and the cultural history of science and is now a meta-researcher in the IMeRG, based in the History and Philosophy of Science Program. Martin’s metaresearch focus on public reasoning practices draw on this academic background and professional experience in the museum sector.
Particular interests include planetariums, public reasoning practices, the science communication work of the Ngarrindjeri Australian David Unaipon and popular astronomy in Australia in the era of the lantern slide.
